From our offices in Knoxville and Memphis, UTRF serves as a bridge between researchers and industry, entrepreneurs and investors.
The commercialization process starts with innovators working in labs, clinics, greenhouses, offices, and classrooms throughout the University of Tennessee. UTRF then facilitates the transfer of inventions to the private sector, providing the public with new products and simultaneously creating new jobs and new companies. This boosts the economy while producing income for inventors and the university.
Our UTRF licensing staff can walk you through the Technology Transfer process and answer your questions.
Let us help transform your innovation into a successful enterprise.
